The "Especial" is the top model from the Perez shop, and offers the absolute best in terms of decoration and materials. The sound is very distinctly Spanish, with a full, romantic tone and quick attack. Clarity is excellent, and there is plenty of volume for any setting including ensemble work, while retaining exceptional quality of sound. The materials selected for this model are top-notch, featuring an exquisitely dramatic set of cocobolo for the back and sides with all kinds of sap contrasts and marbling grain patterns, simply breathtaking. It also features more elaborate detailing work, including additional purfling and inlay. Simply put, this is a fantastic and gorgeous top-level concert guitar by any standard. Although used, it is in excellent condition with only some mild playing wear in the finish.
